Today I framed a few walls but have run out of half inch plywood. Before they go up they need to be sheeted with plywood. That will happen next week. The view from here is beautiful. I snapped a shot of the Osprey this morning. The young couple keep adding branches to their nest.
The last few days I’ve been finishing up the first level. All the blocking is done along with cutting the stair runners and fitting one side with 2×4 temporary treads. The second level has been decked with 3/4″ T&G plywood so now I move up stairs and begin building walls.
Today my good friend Craig and I measured off the layout, cut and installed all the floor joist for the second floor. Tomorrow I plane to deck it with sheets of 3/4″ T&G plywood decking.
The last couple of days I got the stem wall and center post up and plumb ready to receive the beams. Today I got three good friend over this morning to help me cut and set the 4) large glue-Lam’s and the 3) garage door headers.
Today I got a bunch of friends (12) to help me lift the two long north and south walls along with the north corner Simpson sheer brace.
